Guinea Pig Party by Holly Surplice
I am always a fan of a great birthday book, and Holly Surplice's Guinea Pig Party is definitely great. It is also clever in its concept, wonderfully rhyming and charmingly illustrated.
Guinea Pig Party starts with ten little guinea pigs partying in a line. As the party games begin, little things here and there cause the numbers to dwindle. There is a pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey incident and pogo stick problem. There is a temper tantrum and a little pig who eats too much cake and makes an exit. When the birthday pig is all alone, a wish brings back all the party goers and happiness ensues. The final pages show the numbers from 1 - 10 with the happy little party pigs prancing around them!
